Arthritis can make any good day turn sour fast. If you’re one of the many people fighting pain from your arthritis, massage just might be a good option for you. Regular massage of your muscles and joints, whether by a licensed therapist or done at home can lead to a significant reduction of arthritis pain over time. If your looking to try and reduce your arthritis pain, here are three types of massage that can help you get back on your feet and with less pain in no time.
Getting a Swedish massage can be an incredible and relaxing experience. This is actually one of the most popular massage types. Many people view massage as a luxury or indulgence, but when you have arthritis, it can be the difference between living well and living in pain. A Swedish Massage uses long strokes, circular movements and careful kneading to loosen tight muscles. Pressure can range from very light to pretty deep, all depending on the client’s preference. If you’re ready to feel the difference, book your Swedish Massage today!
Also known as a “Detox Massage” this is another wonderful method to help ease sore muscles and joints and bring comfort to those suffering with intense arthritis. This kind of massage uses light, patterned strokes to help excess lymphatic fluid drain into the bloodstream and get toxins out of your body.
Lots of research studies have shown that many different types of techniques work to break up the painful scar tissue and knots in the fascia around the muscle to potentially reduce pain. Rubbing muscles and tendons with a rigid tool like the FasciaBlaster can have this same effect. But BE CAREFUL because the technique here is important, and if it is used incorrectly with too much pressure the FasciaBlaster can create more scar tissue and actually make your pain worse than it already is. Only undergo this type of treatment with a professional who knows what they’re doing.
Sometimes just telling a massage therapist what to do and how much pressure you’d like is one of the most soothing and wonderful things you can do for your arthritis.
If you struggle with arthritis pain, put the past behind you and dump that stress and pain out the back window with the help of a soothing massage.
